2C4C First Step: BREAK SILENCE/// Art Exhibition

  • Two Cents for Consent First Step: BREAK SILENCE

    About Two Cents for Consent: Our goal is to raise awareness by featuring both healthy and unhealthy stories, and thrives to educate and inspire positive motivation in the oppressed. The project started with social media communities called ThaiConsent and Two Cents for Consent. ThaiConsent was created for Thai communities and has over 39,000 followers. A mascot named TC the Pilot was created to symbolize forward-moving motivations inside us. She inspires courage, optimism and sense of security in our community.​​​​​​​
  • First Step: BREAK SILENCE is a pop-up gallery exhibit featuring art and stories to promote consent awareness in the community. The show is comprised of 25 artworks of both local and international artists (San Francisco, New York, LA, Bangkok) to reach deeper into SOMA, San Francisco.
    Blurred judgements and ignorance still continues to evoke consensual issues. With the show First Step: BREAK SILENCE we know that first step is to create a safe space for the voice of the oppressed. Our mission is to encourage open discussion for others who may be silenced.

    Show Features 25 artists and artworks with over 20 anonymous stories displayed at the show.
